God is soooo Good!

Clicking on this picture will take you to my ebay store!

First, I want to thank everyone in our group who has helped so much in putting together this great, cozy place in this huge thing called cyberspace! You have all become such wonderful friends to me, and I thank the Lord every day for you, your talents, your love, and your prayers! I love you all!!

I've been working in crafts since the 70's, starting with hydrocal painting and ceramics. I loved giving classes, learning new techniques, and gracing my home with the finished product. I've dabbled in china painting, dolls, etc., but my true love has been the primitive and victorian type of crafts. When I moved to Virginia and lived in an old farmhouse on 240 acres, somehow I felt drawn to everything old! I just couldn't bear to throw anything away, no matter how worn and torn it was. I loved making memory arrangements in everything from sifters, colenders, and cigar boxes, to collages using old photos, laces, quilts and dried flowers.

After moving back to Florida, I began a wholesale business which lasted for a few years until I just burned out. Making the same thing over and over and over was hard for me, as I would have rather been creating new and different things.

Now, my time is taken up making angels, creating stitcheries in the old childish fashion on old, embroidered linens and doilies, and finding ways to make use of old quilts and quilt tops.

I love to write, and deepest parts of my soul are best stated in my poetry and my writings. I've tried to find creative ways to share these poems, etc., and enjoy making collages that incorporate them into the finished product. My goal with these is to encourage others as Christ has encouraged me and to take someone by the hand and lead them, even for just a few steps, through the desert periods of their lives.

Thank you so much for taking the time to let me share with you a little of myself, my creations, and my Lord Jesus Christ!

You are simply a sweetheart, and I'm so glad that you've taken on the bunch of us.

Your work is so beautiful and the workmanship is amazing. It is even nicer than your photos can convey.

Many blessings dear friend,
